All latest models of Electric Vehicles and Components manufactured by world class manufacturers will be showcased at EV Expo 2016 in Kolkata.
Few world class industries participating in the EV Expo 2016 in Kolkata are ETRON, e-STAR, LOHIA, EXIDE, electra, JEZZA, Mini Metro, NANYA, Green Automotive,etc.
The event comes at a time when country is looking at a paradigm shift in the way cities residents commute with a view to bring down dangerous level of transport related pollution level and also to bring down cost of intra-city commuting. It also comes as a corollary to “The National Electric Mobility Mission Plan 2020” plan announced in July 2015 to bring about transformational paradigm shift in the automotive and transportation industry in the country.
The organizers wanted the event to be inaugurated by CM Mamata Banerjee on May 27. But the day clashed with her swearing-in ceremony on the same day. They are trying their level best to bring in the Chief Minister in any of the two days left for the exhibition.
